"SERIOUS HEALTH THREAT"!!?? Are you kidding me?? Humans have been killing and eating deer meat for hundreds and thousands of years!! I have eaten deer meat since I started eating table food as a toddler and I have never gotten sick from it. I would rather eat deer from the forest than some of this so called "FDA Approved" meat in the grocery stores. How many times do we hear of recalls of this "FDA Approved" food sold in grocery stores!!!???

Plus the fact there is a recession and I for one would love to eat deer instead of paying for beef but no such luck. They need a better governor in la I guess.The meat was checked just like our beef is. Pretty soon those that raise their own meat will be told its no good. Then the same for veggies and fruit.They have already done it for milk. Raw milk is so good.

Attack the governor for what? How would he have been aware of the actions of every person in every agency in the state? Did anyone bring it to his attention? Has he had time to take any action. It seems to me this would be the Provence of the state legislature.

The Louisiana Dept. of Health and Hospitals would rather the homeless go hungry than let them eat deer steaks provided by generous hunters.

That law has hunters across the Sportsman’s Paradise outraged after health officials ordered a rescue mission to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because venison is not allowed to be served in homeless shelters.

The Dept. of Health and Hospitals ordered the staff at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission to throw 1,600 pounds of donated venison in garbage bins – and then ordered then to douse the meat with Clorox – so other animals would not eat the meat.
